Polis Calls on Congress to End Marijuana Prohibition


Speaking alongside industry advocates, U.S. Rep. Jared Polis (D-CO) called Wednesday for Congress to end the prohibition on marijuana, stressing the need to reduce drug violence while hailing the medical cannabis market's capacity for growing the economy. "Ending the failed policy of prohibition with regard to marijuana will strike a major blow against the criminal cartels that are terrorizing Americans and Mexicans on both sides of the border," Polis said at the National Press Club, in response to a question from Raw Story. "It's been estimated that the drug cartels drive about half of ...


Jared Polis has ideas for closing federal budget gap


Although the so-called Gang of Six's proposalfor averting debt-ceiling catastrophe is getting the lion's share of attention right now, Representative Jared Polis has floated some revenue-raising ideas of his own, which the media has largely winnowed down to this: Legalizing marijuana would help close the budget gap. But if that shortchanges some of his other notions, Polis's spokesman isn't complaining. "You can't really blame the media for focusing on a controversial issue when you raise a controversial issue," says Polis communications director Chris Fitzgerald. "If it brings attention to ...

Polis, Foster, Vargas Introduce House Resolution Calling On DOD To Allow DREAMers In The Military
Today Representatives Jared Polis, Bill Foster, and Juan Vargas reintroduced a House resolution calling on the Department of Defense to allow DREAMers to serve in the military.  A copy of the resolution can be found here.  “Regardless of your politics on immigration, we should all agree that bright young people who are willing to contribute to this country by serving in our military should be allowed to do so,” said Rep. Polis. “Our resolution would encourage the Department of Defense to allow them to enlist using existing law. Allowing DREAMers to serve in our military would also bolster national security by helping the various branches of our military meet recruitment needs by drawing upon a greater pool of highly talented and dedicated young men and women.” “There are many smart, capable young men and women who want nothing more than to serve the only country they have ever known,” said Foster. “Allowing DREAMers to serve in our military is just o
Polis Leads 100 House Colleagues in Bipartisan Letter to Protect PILT
Representative Jared Polis (CO-02) today led a bipartisan letter of 100 House colleagues to House Speaker John Boehner and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, urging the two leaders to secure full funding for the Payment in Lieu of Taxes (PILT) program for fiscal year 2016 and beyond. The program will expire at the end of September unless it is reauthorized. “Without the certainty of full funding for the PILT program, counties throughout our districts and across the nation will be unable to provide our constituents with essential services such as education, law enforcement, search and rescue, road maintenance and public health,” the letter stated.  "We welcome this letter demonstrating overwhelming bipartisan support for the PILT program and the 62 percent of counties that have federal public lands within their boundaries," Matthew Chase, Executive Director of the National Association of Counties, said.  “We will continue to work with House and Senate leaders to ensure full
Polis Statement on Resignation of VA Official

Haggstrom retired in the midst of an investigation into delays and cost overruns associated with the design and construction of the VA medical center in Aurora, which is now projected to cost $1.7 billion, nearly five times its original estimation: “Good riddance.”
Polis on GOP Budget: ‘Gimmicks Stacked on Gimmicks’
Representative Jared Polis (CO-02) released the following statement after the House voted last night to pass the so-called “Price 2” budget, a partisan proposal that imposes dangerous shifts in federal spending: “Last night the Republican leadership used gimmicks stacked on gimmicks as they passed a radical and partisan budget that they know is dead on arrival at the White House. While we saw Republicans are capable of working across the aisle with a diverse group of Members, as they did with the SGR fix, they have now reverted to the same thinking that has made this one of the least productive Congresses in history. “We had a real opportunity to work together to pass a responsible balanced budget that simplifies and lowers tax rates, invests in our future, and keeps our nation secure. Every one of my Democratic colleagues was ready to engage in a real, substantive discussion on how to move forward, yet Republicans have once again made clear that they would rather cut Medica
